Brisket Tamale

The humble tamale is one of the most egalitarian of all foods.  Wrapped in a banana or corn leaf, it is eminently portable to the office or to the fields.  Stuffed with either the leftovers from the previous day’s stew or the most decadent of fillings for a celebration, it is always satisfying.

For my family, beef brisket falls into the more celebratory category.  Tonight at Comal we will be unveiling a new tamale that is filled with chile-citrus braised beef brisket, carrots and potatoes, sauced with mole coloradito.  Perfect for either a filling dinner after a long work week, or a festive night out.
